This society aims to help students establish an understanding of entrepreneurship through real life examples and guest speakers. We believe that students can gain valuable information through highly accomplished entrepreneurial speakers who have either started their own company or work for a startup. We not only bring in entrepreneurs, but also many other speakers with marketing, accounting, management, and finance backgrounds. The society also aids current entrepreneurial students who need help with their startup or finding job opportunities by connecting them with alumni and our societies connections. We highly encourage undecided first year students to join our society because you will get a better understanding of all the business majors and future job ideas.

- The Providence College Finance Society provides an environment where students can apply what they have learned from past experience and what they have learned in the classroom in a structured forum. This society is meant to be all encompassing across the broad spectrum of interests within the financial services industry. Members will be exposed to speakers and companies in the industry, take an active role in the organization by way of weekly meetings, and will be given the chance to network with their peers and professionals. The ultimate goal of the PCFS is to promote a culture in which members are engaged with each other, the society, and the greater financial services industry. As of 2019, the Blockchain Club and the Real Estate Club have been added as sections of the Finance Society for students who are interested in developing a better understanding of these segments of the finance industry. More recently, the Risk Management Club has been added to the Finance Society. In addition, the Finance Society has launched the Student-Led Asset Management (SLAM) Program.
